Multiple entities would like to get Helena out of the way, including some who would like to delete Abernathy’s oracular powers altogether. To make matters worse, not only must Helena learn to understand this new magical world and the Long War that she’s been dragged into, but the instruction manual for the store is missing. Add in a jealous custodian wannabe who might be scheming against her, nasty murderous critters, and perhaps a murderous human or two, and Helena’s life gets a bit more complicated. Thankfully, one of the local Wardens is helpful in a buff ex-Navy SEAL lethal way. And, luckily, Helena has her BFF Viv to confide in and count on for fashion advice.
Book of Secrets is a fun, fast read with a really cool magical system. It’s obviously an introduction to a world and magical system that is much larger than what is explained in this first book, leaving room for growth and interesting developments.
Overall: very worth the read. I’m looking forward to the next installment.
I received this book as an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) from NetGalley. My opinions are my own.
Dragged unwillingly into a world of magic she doesn’t understand and never asked for, under fire from the person who was supposed to inherit the role, she needs to figure things out fast before her ignorance dooms the world or the murderer returns for her. Luckily, there is an instruction manual. Unfortunately, it’s missing…
I am a big fan of most of Melissa McShane’s books, and this latest does not disappoint. A comment from the author indicates that there will be ten books in the series, and seven of those are already written. I’m looking forward to a lot more adventures with Helena!
I just felt it was lazy writing. The characters lacked depth and even the good ones like Lucia and Campbell just weren't INTERESTING.
